Automation systems and control room design: Problems and methods

Jukka Ranta

    Research output: Book/ReportReport


    The design of process automation system has got more importance related to plant economy, availability and safety. To manage the design process and to guarantee the quality of design different aids and tools have been proposed, e.g. computer aided requirement specification tools. To develop, e.g. computer aided design tools, a structured model of the design process is needed to understand interactions and feedbacks. The report describes the design process with its problems and interactions, developes a structural model for the design process and gives a short overview of the design tools available today. Short comments to the closely related areas, like ULSI-design and software engineering are also given.
